Re: Aorist indicative with future temporal reference

However, in the context we can see that Jesus is already being betrayed by Judas. It's already happening, but will be completed in the future. What about 1 Thessalonians 2:16? Paul says: "... ἔφθασεν δὲ ἐπ᾽ αὐτοὺς (τοὺς Ἰουδαίας) ἡ ὀργὴ εἰς τέλος" NASB: But wrath has come upon them (the Jews) to th...

Re: Aorist indicative with future temporal reference

[*] Griechische Grammatik zum Neuen Testament This is a systematic Greek grammar for the New Testament, covering most of what I find in BDR / BDF as well. Lots of examples. In German. Uses vocabulary and concepts more often encountered in Germany than in the States, so it's not always easy to quick...

Re: Aorist indicative with future temporal reference

The thing is: Everyone knew about examples like these before 1989 and everyone knew that there was a coersion of temporal reference in them. Grammars talked about them regularly, but just put them in different categories. The only thing that Porter really did was provide a different explanation for ...

Perfect participles are practically adjectival, here describing the state that they are currently in, rooted and grounded (and proof that mixed metaphors are biblical).
Well said. Especially since they're middle!

Re: Aorist indicative with future temporal reference

For example, were there any verses in the bible that prior to 1990 had always been translated in the past tense, but then, thanks to the new understanding, the translation was updated to a proleptic future aorist? That should be a simple "yes or no" answer, with demonstrable examples if the answer ...

After the Porter vs Fanning debate revolutionized Greek scholarship
Also, it didn't revolutionize Greek scholarship. They're touch points on a long standing trend.

I can't claim omniscience on this, but my experience is: No.

Re: Introduction The Contribution of the Cordoba-School to the Lexicography of New Testament Greek

The original work was in Spanish and has been available for some time, though there's some new things here, too. It's a solid representation of structural semantics popular in the 1970's and 80's.

Re: Does κατάλαλος have forensic associations?

I wouldn't feel comfortable attributing forensic associations given the data available. BDAG appears to give most all the lexical data available--I don't see much more in LSJ beyond a handful of references in Polybius and nothing that looks forensic.

Re: Verbless clauses

I'm not aware of any detailed work on non-verbal predicate in Ancient Greek, unfortunately. Just an dissertation from the 70's: Toward a Descriptive Analysis of 'Einai as a Linking Verb in New Testament Greek by Lane McGaughy https://amzn.to/2XrZe4x But there is a substantial amount of general lingu...
